Hi, this is Namkyung Lee from Korea. Though, you can call me N.K. if it is easier for you to call. I tried to be called by Namkyung but I realize that my name is long, difficult to be pronounced so I decided to make my name shorter as N.K. I am an exchange student from Yonsei University to here, UC Berkeley. Before I came here I was really worried about many things but for now, I am satisfied with my life at Cal. Recently, I am doing two interesting activities : Hip-hop dance and play guitar. It’s my first time dance and also learn guitar so sometimes it is burden to me but I decided to enjoy. Because I am staying here only for one year, I do want to try as many things as possible.
This is my first time learning for “actual researching”, so I am really looking forward to this class. I am not sure how to set up my research topics, how to find it and so on, during this semester, I want to do some research about human rights, world commodity chain(especially about GMO food) or Uranium. Some of these are related with my other class’s final report topic, which is GMO, so I want to do some research about this subject. Especially the history of GMO and the reason why we need GMO food, and I want to somehow relate this with world commodity chain and global economic system we now have. Third world, European centered mind and so on.
I want to learn a lot from this class and will put enough time to make an effort. Nice to meet you(:
